I do, however, go to the gym three times a week, and the gym is attached to a swimming pool, where I could mix up my homeopathic anti-magnetism formula. According to my maths, which let's face it is a bit sketchy, a 25m x 10m x 1.5m (average - 1m at the shallow end, 2m at the deep end) pool contains [25 x 10 x 1.5] 375 tons of water. A 5kg magnet dissolved in that would be roughly 1/75,000 magnet/water ratio.
What would a devout homeopathist make of it, though?
